I have had a border of 8 beautiful cherry laurels This year they developed a problem causing rust spots and holes in their leaves.

I have had to remove many dead branches from one but the others seem affected by the problem to a lesser degree and would hate to lose them.

Has anyone had this problem been able to identify the cause and been able to save them

The leaves aren't necessarily an indication of gummosis, but finding orangish, sticky stuff coming out of the trunk would be, a common malady of plants in this genus. You may even find one or more decaying holes in the trunk(s).
